Pack Frame

Mid Oct. 2009

Time to Carve: 1 hours
Finishing: 3 hours

I saw this pattern in the packet I have and thought 'Wow I remember my old scout book had directions on how to build pack frames'. This would be a great addition to my slides. Construction was quite simple, once the wooden parts were measured and cut, and rubber bands helped hold the parts together. The pack itself was make from an old teeshirt and the ax was a quick carve. While the pattern didn't call for it, I got out that old scout handbook to tie the diamond hitch to hold the pack, ax and frame together. (This is what you used if you had one of those pack frames in real life.) The loop is a piece of leather attached to the frame using some heavy thread.
